King Lear – Huge Success

This year the WHS Shakespeare Society took on the daunting task of producing one of  the bard’s most challenging plays – King Lear. The drama follows unraveling of a King’s kingdom and mind as his family implodes and he finds himself the victim of numerous betrayals (brought on by his own ego and those closest to him). Hazel Osbourne and Drew Brice-Ford rose to the challenge as the directors of this year’s production and set the scene in a 1920s club. The Bright Young Things then set about the destruction of Lear in an engaging and entertaining way that has continued the proud tradition of student produced and directed Shakespeare plays that look set to continue into the future. Congratulations to the cast and crew who took on what is arguably one of the most difficult Shakespeare plays to stage – and did themselves proud.
